Dunlop® | Reflecting the spirit of racing
Delivering style with performance to match, Dunlop tires are designed for drivers who value the arrival as much as the journey. All the sleek appearances and driving advantages provided by the brand are rooted in more than a century of racing experience.
Dunlop first made history in Ireland in 1888 with the development of the pneumatic (air-filled) tire, an idea brought to life by John Boyd Dunlop for his son's tricycle. By the very next year, the invention was adopted for cycling races and contributed to an impressive number of victories. This was just the start of a tradition of racing success that would only grow stronger with the rise of automobiles.
Since then, Dunlop has continued to lead the way in performance tire manufacturing, developing numerous breakthroughs and helping drivers to achieve win after win. Today Dunlop tires are shaped by the brand's heritage, focusing on high-performance technology that optimizes the connection between the driver and the road. This heritage is also proudly reflected in the sporty design of every tire. From the racetracks of Europe to America's sophisticated tire-making labs, the journey has been epic, and there's so much more to come.
